THE SCRIPTURES Startling Presentation of Coin ing Events. PASTOR RUSSELL'S VIEWS. Churches of All Denominations and the Civil Powers of Earth Are About to Ufiite In Common Cause—Powerful Influence Preparing For the Battle of Armageddon—A Reign of Anarchy Will Be the Result of the Warfare Until The Messiah Takes Control. I PASTOR. RUSSELL] Brooklyn,. N. Y., Nov. 3. '1' li e Brooklyn Academy o u s i w u a crowded to the lim it today to hear Pastor Russell's discourse on the "Battle of Arma geddon." His text was: "He gathered them together uuto a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddo n." (Revelation xvi, 1(5.) The speaker said: Armageddon in the Hebrew signiHes the "Hill of Meglddo," or Mount of De »truction. It was famous as a battle field, In Old Testament times. The Lord has seen fit to associate the name Armageddon, with the great con troversy between Truth and Error, right and wrong, God and Mammon, with which this age will close, perish, and the New Age of Messiah's glory be ushered in. He has purposely used highly symbolical figures of speech in the last book of the Bible, evidently with a view to hiding certain impor tant truths until the due time for their reveal me nt. But even in the due time, the Bible assures us, "None of the wicked shall understand" (Daniel xii. 0, 10)—none who are out of heart har mony with God—but only the wise of His people—the "wise virgin" class of the Master's parable. I have long avoided presentation ot my understanding of our text aud its context. I take it up now by request and because 1 believe it Is due time to be understood. I disclaim any special Inspiratibn. In some particulars my views agree with those of other Bible students, and in other respects they disagree. Each hearer must use hi9 owti Judgment, do his own Bible study, and reach his own conclusions. Kindly remember that I am Dot re sponsible for the figures of speech used by 'the Lord. My interpretations do in deed constitute a terrible arraignment of institutions which we have all rever enced and which embrace good people, of good words and good works. God's saintly people in these various institu tions, being comparatively few, are ignored when systems as a whole are dealt with in prophecy. The Dragon, Beast, False Prophet. Our coutext tells us that three tm pure spirits (teachings) will go forth from the mouths of the Dragon, the Beast and the Pulse Prophet, and these three will be In accord, and symbolical ly the doctrines are represented by "frogs." These three doctrines are to have a mighty influence throughout the civilized earth. They are to gather the kings and their armies to the great Battle of Armageddon. The ecclesiastical kings and princes, and their retinues of clergy and faith ful adherents, will be gathered in solid phalanx—Protestant and Catholic. The kings and captains of Industry, and us aany as can be Influenced by them, jvlll be gathered to the same side. The political kings and princes, with all Cbelr heuebmen and retainers, will fol low in line on the same side. The '"nanclal kings and merchant princes, mdall whom they can Influence by the most gigantic power ever yet exercls ed in the world, will Join the same •lde, according to this prophecy. These "doctrines of demons," repre sented by the "frogs," will lead many noble people in this great army to as sume an attitude quite contrary to their preference. For a time the wheels of liberty and progress will be turned backward and medieval re stralnts will lie considered necessary ir self-preservation—for the mainte nance of the present order of things. sti In giving this Interpretation, It Is necessary for hs to Indicate what is sytobolized by the Dragon, the Beast, and the False Prophet Bible students of nearly all denominations agree with os. that the "Dragon" of Revelation represents the purely Civil Power. Protestant Interpreters generally agree that the "Beast like a leopard" (Reve lation xlii, 2) represents the Papacy. But fewer still,: we fear, will be ready to "support our view that Protestantism Is the ''Image of the Beast" (Revelation xlil, 15) In our' context given another name, "the False Prophet" We urge no one to accept our Interpretation, nor shall we think hard of any who refuse it. We will neither slander nor otherwise injure them now/nor threat en them with ^eternal torture. They have the same right to their views that 1 hove, and the same right to makc them known to others. And I, for one, will be very glad to consider any thing which opponents may set forth as their interpretations of our text, "Unclean Spirit* Like Frogs." The symbolisms of Scripture, right ly understood, are always forceful hen the Holy Spirit used "frog" jsymbollcalj? represent cjKtalti doctrines or teachings, we may be sure the true application will fit well. A frog has a sage look, a wise look. It swells ItBelf up in an apparent en deavor to lmQ£pss the beholder. Its great month vfeli represents its chief power, used to croak. Applying these symbols, we learn that an evil spirit, Influence, teaching, will come from the Protestant churches federated, from the Church of Rome, And from the Civil authorities, all In full agreement The spirit of all will be boastful: an air of superior wisdom arid knowledge will be proudly assum ed—all will croak in harmony. All will tell of dire results that would follow, involving the Interests of both the present and the future life, If their counsel be not followed. However con flicting tho creeds, the differences will be Ignored in the general proposition that nothing ancient must be disturb ed, or looked tuto, or repudiated. The Divine authority of the Church, and the Divine right of kings, aside from the Church, will not be allowed to conflict Any persons or teachings in conflict with these boastful and un scrlptural claims will be branded as everything vile, at the mouths of these "frogs" speaking from pulpits and platforms and through the religious and secular press. The nobler senti ments of some will be strangled by the philosophy of the same evil spirit which spoke through Caiaphas, the high priest, respecting Jesu3. As Caia phas declared it expedient to commit a crime in violation of justice, human and Divine, to be rid of Jesus and His teachings, so this "frog"' spirit will ap prove of every violation of principle necessary to their self-protection. The croaking of these "frog" spirits or doctrines will gather the kings and princes, financial, political, religious and industrial into one great army. The spirit of fear, inspired by the croaklngs of these "frogs," will scourge the passions of otherwise good and reasonable men to fury, desperation. In their blind following of these evil spirits, evil doctrines, they will be ready to sacrifice life and everything on the altar of what they mistakenly suppose is justice, truth and righteous ness, under a Divine arrangement. For a brief time, as we understand the Scriptures, these combined forces of Armageddon will triumph. Free speech, free mails, and other liberties which have come to be the very breath of the masses in our day, will be ruth lessly shut off under the plea of neces sity, the glory of God, the commands of the Church, etc. All will seem to be serene, until the great social explosion in our context described as the "great Earthquake." An "earthquake," in symbolic language, signifies social revolution, and the declaration of the context is that none like unto It ever before occurred. (Revelation xvi, 18, 19.) Jesus described it as a time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation.—Matthew xxlv, 21. The Lord Will Gather Them. The false, frog-like teachings will gather together into one host the great, the rich, the wise, the learned and the kings of the earth, to battle. At this Juncture Divine Power will step for ward, and our text tells us that BE shall gather the marshaled hosts to Armageddon—to the Mountain of De struction. The very thing which they sought to avert by their union, federa tion. etc.. will be the very thing they will hasten. Other Scriptures tell us that God will be represented by the Great Messiah, and that He will be.on the side of the masses. Thus we read In Daniel xii. l:."At that time shall Michael I the Godlike One—Messiah] stand up"-assuine authority. He will take possession of His Kingdom iu a manner little looked for by many of those who erroneously have been claiming that tbey were His Kingdom, and authorized by Him to reign in His name and In His stead. Jesus declared. "His servants ye are unto whom ye render service." Some may be rendering service to Satan and to error, who claim to be rendering service to God and to righteousness and some of these may be serving lg norantly, as did Saul of Tarsus, who "verily thought that he did God a serv Ice" in persecuting the Church. The same principle holds true reversely. As mi earthly king does not hold him self responsible lor the moral character of each soldier who fights In his bat tles, so the i-ord does not vouch for the moral character of all who will enlist and fight on His side of any question. "His servants they are to whom they render service," whatever the motive or object prompting them. The same principles will apply In the coming Battle of Armageddon. God's side of that battle will be the people's side, and the very nondescript host, the people, will be pitted at the begin ning or the battle. Anarchists, Social ists, and hot-headed radicals of every school of reason and unreason,' will be In the forefront of that battle. The majority of the poor and the middle class prefer peace at almost any price. A comparatively small number, God's consecrated people, will at heart be longing for Messiah's Kingdom. These will bide the Lord's time and wait pa tiently for It they will be of good courage, knowing the outcome outlined In the "more sure word of prophecy," to which tbey have done well to take heed, "as uuto a light shining In a dark place until the Day dawn."—II Peter 1, 10. 'I'he masses will be restless of their restraints, but. will be conscious of their own weakness as compared to the kings and princes, financial, religions and political, which will then hold sway. Besides, the masses have no sympathy with anarchy. They realize truly that the worst form of govern ment Is better than none. The masses will seek relief through the ballot aud peaceful re-adjustment of earth's af tairs for lite ellmluntloo of «vll, for the placing of monopolies and utilities! and the supplies of nature n the hands! of the people for the public good. The! crisis will be reached when the hither-! to upholders of Jaw shall become vlo-j lators of the law aud resisters of the will of the majority as expressed by the ballot. Fear for the future will lead the well-meaning masses to desper ation and anarchy will result when Socialism falls. The Cloud's Silver Lining. Horrible would be this outlook for the future did we uot have the Infalli ble Word of God assuring us of a glorious outcome! Divine Wisdom has Withheld until our day the great knowl-^ edge and skill which Is at the same time breeding millionaires and discon-j tents. Had God lifted the veil a thou-j sand years sooner, the world would have lined up for Its Armageddon a thousand years sooner. But that would have been too soon for the Di vine purpose, because Messiah's King dom is to he the great Thousand Year Sabbath of the world's history. God in kindness veiled our eyes until the time when the gathering to Ar mageddon would immediately precede Messiah's taking to Himself His great power, and beginning His reign.— Reve lation xi. 17. IS "Send Them Strong Delusions." St. Paul wrote prophetically of our time, that it would be one of serious trial and testing to mauy professing to he Christians. The reason for this he states-they received not the Truth In the love of it. (II Thessalonlans ii, 10, ll.i They preferred their own errone ous theories, the Apostle explains, and therefore God will give them over to a "strong delusion." and let them believe the lie which they preferred, aud let them suffer for missing the Truth which they did not love. Thus they will be in the coudemned host, "fight ing against God," because of their lack of love for the Truth. It is sad to say that we all as Chris tians have been laboring under a thor ough delusion respecting God's Plan. We have claimed that Christ set up His Church in Kingdom power, and that the Church has been reigning on the earth as His representative. On the strength of this delusion, Jews and heretics have been persecuted to death as opponents to Christ's kingdom. All the while we thoughtlessly repeated the I.ord's prayer: "Thy Kingdom come: Thy will be doue on earth, as in Flea veil." We knew that the Redeemer said that lie would come again to make us His Bride and joint-heirs but we ignored the Scriptures We were drunk, as the Scriptures symbolically say, "all nations were drunk" with the false doctrine, it Is this false doctrine that will constitute the "frog" spirit which soon will begin to croak and to prepare for Armageddon. The Bible presentation is that the world is a section of the universe iu rebellion against Divine authority, un der the captaincy of Satan aud his as sociated fallen angels. By Divine grace Jesus has already "tasted death for every man," and the merit of that sac rifice must, eventually, grant Adam and his posterity a full, fair opportunity for the attainment of everlasting life. All who thus seek the Divine program and are walking in the light may know something at least respecting the "times and seasons." These brethren "ure not In darkness, that that day laud that battle of Armageddon) should overtake" tbern "as a thief" un a wares Armageddon Not Yet but Soon. For forty years the Armageddon forces have been mustering for both sides of the conflict. Strikes, lockouts ami riots, great and small, have been merely inciiiental skirmishes as the belligerent parties crossed each other's pal'.is Court and Army scandals in Kiiii'iie. Insurance, Trust and Court scandals in America, have shaken pub lic ('itiiiideiice. Dynamite plots, charg er! tiy turns on employees aud on em ployers. nave lurther shaken confi dence aii'l '"iKled to make each dis rriwtl'ui or tin* other Bitter aud augry reelings mi ii'ith sides are more and more r: Miitest The lines of buttle are daily nming more distinctly marked. Nevertheless Armageddon cunnot yet oe t'mmlit other matters Intervene, according to prophecy. Gentile times uave still two years to run I'he •'linage of the Beust" of our co"'!e.\t uiust yet receive life— power. Tfie IRNAIRE must lie transformed from a mere mechanism to a living force. Protestant Federation realizes that its organization will still be futile unless It receive vHali/.atioti-unless its clergy directly or iudireAly shall be recog nized as possessed of apostolic ordina tion aud authority to teach. This the prophecy indicates will come from the two horned beast, which, we believe, symbolically represents the Church of England. High-handed activities of Protestantism aud Catholicism, operat ing in conjunction for the suppression of human liberties, await this vivifying of the Image. This may come soon, hut Artnageddon can uot precede It but must follow perhaps a year after It, according to our view of the Prophecy. Still another thing Intervenes Al though the Jews are gradually flowing Into Palestine, gradually obtaining con trol of the land of Canaan, and though reports say that already nl» teen millionaires are there, nevertli less prophecy requires an evidently larger numlmr of wealthy Hebrews to be there before the Armageddon crisis be reached. Indeed we understand that "Jacob's trouble" In the Holy Land will come at the very close of Armageddon. Then Messiah's King dom will begin to be manifested. Thenceforth Israel In the land of prom ise will gradually rise from the ashes of the past to the grandeur of proph ecy. Through Its Divinely appointed princes Messiah's Kingdom, all power fu! but Invisible, will begin to roll away the curse aud to lift up mankind. NOTICE OF EXECUTION SALE.
